create a new directory on your desktop.
create a new fla and save it to the new desktop directory.
close and fla and then reopen it.
There dosent seem to be yet. saved it a few times and no error!
Why is that?
it's hard to say.
but you should be able to create a directory on any non-restricted area that you want use to save your files. you don't have to use a desktop directory.
(p.s when using the adobe forums, please mark helpful/correct responses, if there are any.)
I knid of understand now.
I reinstalled off a hard drive onto my main harddrive.
I'm guessing the old harddrive's permissions are a little messed up because I've given it read/write perms but Adobe still won't save over files only save them a new, and even that messes up sometmies. I'll just save to my main hard drive if there's no actual fix you can think of? I doubt adobe support would be very helpful as it's a very specfic set of circumstances.
Thanks kglad, and I'll mark as helpful.
I have been running into this issue lately. I try saving it not only under a different name but also on a different hard drive. Then it doesn't work and I have no choice but to quit the program and the file is corrupted. I now am saving it two different locations regularly in case this happens again (which it has) because one day last week I lost several hours worth of work. Is Adobe working to fix this issue?
reset your preferences -
(or remove Win: C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Adobe\Animate CC 2017\ and
Mac: /Users/<username>/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Animate CC 2017/ and
What do preferences have to do with it?
they may be corrupted.
I have the same problem. I can not save a .fla file on my Macbook Pro (High Sierra v. 10.13.6) in Adobe Animate CC version 18.0.2
I tried re-installing Animate, also older versions of it.
I tried re-installing MacOS.
I tried setting permissions of a folder where I want to save it.
I did a Disk utility check in recovery mode, everything ok.
I've reset the preferences of Animate.
The only thing that works is saving as a *.xfl file. But this is not a solution because when I do "control>test" (command Return), it tries to save .TMP.fla in the Library/Application Support folder, but saving a .fla file seems not to work and causes the error.
Does anyone have a solution?
I found the solution that worked for me.
I have reset my Home Folder Permissions, found instructions here: https://appletoolbox.com/2016/07/fix-corrupt-user-accounts-macos/
So for me it was only a MacOS problem, Animate works fine now.
Any insight on this Adobe?
I have lost hours of work because of this issue. Please fix it or give legitimate help.
these are user-to-user forums.
Oh. Right. Oops.
I was able to find a temporary file that recovered my work and saved that as a new file.
Then the same issue occurred after a few hours ... so I went back and found the temporary file again but didn't save it because I thought it might corrupt it and wanted to open and close Animate CC.
Which seems to be a mistake. I think it deleted that temporary file and now I'm only left with the corrupt .fla. Do you know if the temporary file was moved somewhere/is recoverable? Or am I just **** out of luck?
search your computer for fla files.
and start saving your fla's with increasing version numbers appended. i made a jsfl that automatically appends _v000, _v001 etc to the flas.
